MapR Hadoop

MapR provides a unique Hadoop distribution that addresses enterprise requirements for dependability, ease of use, and integration. MapR can be used on standalone clusters, as well as being an option on AWS EMR and Google Compute Engine.

In this presentation we will briefly introduce Hadoop, then discuss MapR's unique reliability and manageability features. We'll conclude with a discussion of MapR's support for industry standard interfaces, including NFS. The NFS interface enables users to leverage standard file-based applications, and makes it easier to get data into and out of the cluster, This talk covers the motivation for supporting industry-standard interfaces as well as several real-world use cases. In addition, this talk explains the technical details behind these capabilities and how they actually work.

    Awesome job overall. Great speaker, very knowedgable and with solid detail, and the event was timed perfectly for after work with optional social event afterwards. It was a great networking opportunity and I'm really glad I got to attend.

    Well prepared presentation; hit nice balance of intro to Hadoop and overview how MapR differentiates itself from Apache Hadoop.
